The Metal Master armor is a unique piece of armor in Fallout 3.


Metal Master armor is a variant of raider throwdown armor available in the Fallout 3 add-on The Pitt. Like the other throwdown armors, it is comprised of components from metal armor and raider sadist armor. Everett explains that the previous user made it bullet-proof, but it did not help him after he fell off of the bridge.

It is only repairable with leather armor, and provides a Damage Resistance of 36 as well as bonuses of 10 to Unarmed and Energy Weapons, while incurring a penalty of -1 to Agility.


It is a reward for bringing 40 steel ingots to Foreman Everett.
